As of March 2017, EKO Project is collaborating with The Worldwide Tribe.

EKO Kitchen is a community run field kitchen which supports refugees in Vasilika military refugee camp in Greece. We cook healthy meals daily for 1300 people. All of EKO kitchens ingredients are sourced locally in Thessaloniki supporting Greek farmers and producers. Our chef Houssam is Syrian and the kitchen staff are a combination of refugees and visiting volunteers. We create a place for collaboration and community and provide a small taste of home for those that have extremely limited options for food. EKO Kitchen was founded out of a desperate need to feed thousands of refugees who were stranded in Greece after the closing of the Macedonian border in early 2016. Upon the eviction of EKO camp in June EKO kitchen has worked tirelessly to reposition itself to best serve the refugees at the new military site. Remaining independent has meant the project can respond directly to the needs of the community with almost no overhead costs. 0,35 € provides food for 1 person 3,50 € provides food for 10 people 35,00 € provides food for 100 people 175,00 € provides food for 500 people 350.00 € provides food for 1000 people. Every contribution, however big or small, is hugely appreciated. It is because of people like you that this project is possible.
